HTML: ZIP File from a website

I have a number of files to download that I have placed into a zip file. Once they are downloaded, is there a way to automatically unzip them? I know that if you click on a zipped file in Windows XP, you will be prompted to unzip them. This is for a church website in a small town. Most people will have Windows XP, but there are also quite a few Windows ME and Windows 98 as well. I want to make sure it will work. Plus, the majorities are not computer savvy and would be terrified at using something like WinZip, so automation is the way to go. Please help if you can.

Hello Mister_Spock,

You should store your file as a self-extract archive on your webserver!
